Line art with Wash

For this assignment, we were supposed to take our final line art illustration from last week and add a watercolor wash. I went through two versions of wash. The first used red, green, yellow, and brown and mixed together to create a mess of an image. So I decided to maintain the simplicity of the original image and just use the color to enhance the line work, rather than to necessarily add a color base. I had some trouble with the scanner, because it was picking up the tone of the paper itself, but after some adjustments in the scanning process and the photoshop layering, the tone disappeared. I think this was a successful image, overall.
